 Licques

The centre of Licques

Licques



We found out about the village of Licques when we visited the tourist office in Ardres They told us about the river Hem valley and recommend several villages to visit.

Although we stay in the area a couple of times a year in the nearby town of Marquise. We did not know about this lovely valley 10 miles down the road.

Our visit was in December on a cold Winter morning.Licques has several shops two large quality furniture shops and cafe bars.Most important of all it has 3 bread shops.Which is good for a smallish village in a rural setting.

The village main claim to fame is it turkey fare held around the 13 / 14 December. We just missed it by one day you can see one of the marquee tents in the photo. The turkeys are paraded through the streets.You can buy one of these corn feed free range birds at the market.

Places to stay in the village we usually spend a couple of hours a year in Licques in December.This year we found a location in the middle of the village to stay for a week in June.The house has 6 bedrooms on 3 floors and was an old coaching Inn.We normally stay just outside a village or town so it was nice to be able to walk across the road to the bread shop.The Monday morning market adds a bit of colour for a few hours.We also visited one of the local Bars which was also a restaurant and petrol station and parcel drop off and pick up point.
